Patricia Arquette will take on a starring role in upcoming Apple thriller series "Severance," reports Variety.

Arquette will star alongside Adam Scott, who has taken on the lead role in the series. "Severance" has been described as a workplace thriller set at a company called Lumen Industries that's aiming to take work-life balance to a new level. Scott will play Mark, an employee with a dark past, while Arquette will play Mark's boss.

"Severance" is being directed and produced by Ben Stiller, and was created by Dan Erickson. It comes from Endeavor Content, a company also producing current Apple TV+ shows "See" and "Truth Be Told."

There's no launch date for "Severance" at this time, but Apple gave a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes in late 2019.

As a massive fan of Apple TV+, I absolutely NEED to see more content on a monthly basis. One new show a month is simply not going to cut it. I am looking forward to Little America, but 8-10 episodes of a 30 minute show are definitely not enough to carry me through the month. There's the new Oprah book club episode which is nice, but that's still not enough (I joined the club and have been reading Olive, Too this month. I found it fairly depressing and geared toward people approaching their middle age/seniority, and focuses on death more than I prefer).

Likewise, a huge fan of Apple TV+. As a side note, how’d you manage to sign up for The Oprah Book Club on Books? Do you just have to start reading a book that’s on her list?

I just bought it on Amazon after Oprah announced the bi-monthly book choice.

Nice, it needs more shows ASAP

I think Servant is the best show on there right now, if you haven’t seen it i highly recommend.

Arquette wore sunglasses onstage at the Golden Globes trying to hide her druggie eyes.
Thanks for the exposé! I’ll be sure to not watch this... I don’t want to support an actor/actress that has a habit.

Do you mind making a quick list of the musicians that use drugs, so I can avoid them in Apple Music?

*extreme eye roll*

It’s gossip not a call to arms. You are the one trying to make a big deal of it.
